China’s first digital platform, Daily Needs, will soon be launched in China.
The new platform allows people to find, buy and use essential items like soap, shampoo and toilet paper.
Daily Needs was created by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country’s government-run think tank, which was founded by former President Hu Jintao in 2012.
The company was designed to bring a simpler, more open, and transparent China to the world, and its mission was to simplify everyday life in China by enabling the nation to use the internet more freely and affordably.
“We’ve built the first of its kind platform for the world to access and use daily necessities in China,” a NDRC spokesperson said in a statement.
The platform allows users to find products in shops, at marketplaces, and even at local markets.
For example, a user can search for the soap and shampoo by typing the word ‘shampoo’ in a search bar, and then they can find the shampoo they need for a particular day.
It also allows users who do not have a daily need to simply add a box to their search that allows them to search for a product in a range of products.
According to NDRC data, daily necessities accounts for one-third of all purchases in China and account for almost half of all household spending.
Daily needs is now available in China’s five biggest cities: Shanghai, Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Tianjin.
On the platform, users can find products for specific categories, like water, shampoo, toilet paper, and soap.
For instance, a single box can be found in a product for water, so the user can filter through different categories to find the best option for their needs.
Users can also filter products by a wide range of criteria, such as weight, price, and brand name.
For example, users could filter by the brand name, the price, or the brand, and find the cheapest option for that category.
This makes it easy for users to compare products and find products that match their needs, according to NDEC.
Using Daily Needs allows users in China to get basic necessities like toilet paper and soap for free, which are available for most of the world.
But for the NDRC, the platform is meant to make life easier for the people in China who don’t have access to basic necessities.
“Daily Needs will bring access to everyday necessities to millions of people, providing them with the opportunity to purchase the essentials they need while at the same time enabling them to save money on necessities,” the NDEC spokesperson said.
As the platform opens up to the rest of the global community, the NDLC has set a goal of expanding the platform to 10 million users.
Daily Needs is a free and open platform, and users can register for it at dailyneed.com, where users can also make and receive daily necessities orders, the spokesperson said, adding that the NDSC has partnered with some of the most prominent brands, including the world’s biggest online retailer, Alibaba.
In the future, the company hopes to build an app that will allow users to easily shop for products they need in real time.
